** PHOEBE IS AN ACTIVE CHIHUAHUA with a Level 4 Heart Murmur/Enlarged Heart *   

She takes Medication **  She is not spayed; too dangerous due to heart**


Meet PHOEBE, a 9 yr old, 13 lb, Chihuahua. **She came to us 'overweight' at 14 lb and is slowly losing that extra weight which will be better for her heart **  As of 3/16, she weighs in at 11.2 lbs.

She is diagnosed with enlarged heart and takes medication, but it doesn't seem to slow her down a bit!

Phoebe is housebroken but has a few accidents inside because she is on a diuretic and drinks a lot of water so goes outside about every hour or so.

A Fenced yard would be Great f or her because she likes to explore the yard and CHASES SQUIRRELS & RABBITS!

She'll sit on your lap or lay on the sofa dog bed with blankets.

She's a TALKER and will cry talk to let you know she has something to say!

She LOVES to play (see videos) with dogs her own size and will even play bite your hands when she wants to play with you.

Phoebe's perfect family will be home a lot, have another little dog to play with and a fenced yard where she can explore giving her the best years of her life!
